What is the 41.5 Miles in June: Walk the Bases Challenge?

The 41.5 Miles in June: Walk the Bases Challenge is a fun new way to get ACTIVE. During the month of June, we’re challenging everyone to walk at least 41.5 miles in 30 days to help raise critical funds for prostate cancer research.

If you’re wondering how we came up with the 41.5 miles, it’s actually equal to the 609 home runs hit during the PCF-MLB Home Run Challenge campaign last year. So, even if no baseball games are played in June, we’re still “walking the bases” for life-saving research!

If you’re interested in joining the challenge, send us an email and we’ll help you get started.

For rules regarding giveaways during the challenge, please review terms.
